April 24th National Pigs In A Blanket Day

This is a tasty treat day! There’s nothing just nothing like a little pork in a biscuit. Of course, this depends on your religion but if it is not against your beliefs it’s something you can really sink your teeth into!

No one is exactly sure who first came up with the pig in the blanket, it has probably been around for centuries and more than likely came into existence by mistake… like most things do. Sort of like the Earl of Sandwich accidentally created the sandwich while playing poker! Probably some Knight asked for a biscuit and a sausage and found he had to go slay some dragon, so he put the sausage in the biscuit and off he went. (Or she if you like that better.)

Pigs In A Blanket

And then there are those who would like to spoil today by reminding us that pigs are cute animals and we shouldn’t eat them. However it should be remembered that a pig will eat anything! There are stories of people in the past that put their murder victims in a pen with pigs and they were never seen again.

And I have never actually seen a real pig in a blanket. I suppose it could happen, if you keep a pig as a pet inside. But in the wild I do not see pigs carrying around blankets with them. And what if a pig threw a party? What would they serve? Finger sandwiches? It’s all in your perception.

And I perceive pigs in a blanket to be very tasty and fun to eat! It is the perfect party food since it rarely requires a lot of clean up and people can carry them around with them while socializing.

How to celebrate – Have some pigs in a blanket for supper tonight! Invent your own “something” in a blanket if you don’t eat pork. Get a pet pig.
